Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 dish with vegetable oil cooking spray. Line the bottom and sides of the dish with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with vegetable oil cooking spray and set aside.

Filling: In a small mixing bowl, mix together the jam and the apricots. Set aside.

Crust: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Stir in the oats and walnuts. Add the butter, egg and vanilla and stir until incorporated.

Using a fork or clean fingers, lighty press half of the crust mixture onto the bottom of the prepared pan. Using a spatula, spread the filling over the crust leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edge of the pan. Cover the filling with the remaining crust mixture and gently press to flatten. Bake until light golden, about 30-35 minutes. Cool for 1 hour. Cut into bars and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
